Traffic wardens in the UK are accused of cashing in on Brits during confinement as many across the country have been issued with parking tickets.
Angry motorists claim they have hit with penalties, including NHS workers after working long shifts fighting the coronavirus.
And they have taken to social media to question why wardens are still on the street during the government’s lockdown.
Only frontline, key workers like doctors, police, firemen, and utility workers are allowed to work, and in most cases, traffic wardens are employed by the council, so they decide whether or not wardens patrol the streets.
The fines have been issued despite the British Parking Association putting out guidelines which state that no health or social care worker should have to pay parking charges.
